Police appeal for information following Padfield shed break-in

Posted on 6th June 2014

Officers from the Hadfield Safer Neighbourhood Team are appealing for witnesses following a shed break-in in Padfield.

Overnight between 7pm on Tuesday, June 3 and 6am on Wednesday, June 4, offenders climbed over a wall and entered the rear garden of a property on Padfield Main Road, Padfield.

Offenders unscrewed the door hinges of the garden shed to gain entry, however no items were taken from within.

Police are urging all residents to ensure that sheds, garages and outbuildings are properly secure and that any valuables are kept out of view.

Derbyshire Constabulary launched a forcewide campaign earlier this week (Monday, June 2) to tackle shed and garden burglary ahead of the summer months.

As people spend more time in their gardens, sheds are left insecure with sometimes very expensive power tools and garden equipment being left on show.

The campaign will see crime prevention initiatives taking place across the county where officers will be giving advice to the public on how to protect their property from criminals.

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to contact PCSO Brian Buller on 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.

To report a crime anonymously call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
